Islanders fan here..
But don't worry, I come in peace. :)
I'm planning a trip to California which involves stopping by Los Angeles. The huge hockey fan in me can't resist a chance to catch guys like Brown, Kopitar and O'Sullivan live.
I plan on going to the game on January 8th (I believe against the Ducks), and I came here seeking an answer regarding parking for Kings games:
Being a college student, I don't have much $$ to throw around - especially on high parking charges (if it's anything like Nassau Coliseum on Long Island). I know for the Coliseum that there are plenty of public parking lots (Hofstra University, and Nassau Community College) where I can park for free and walk to the Coliseum across the street. Is there a similar situation in LA?
Any suggestions would help considerably.
Finally, I just thought I'd update you guys on a former Kings' prospect - Jeff Tambellini. 99% of Isles fans hate him. :P
I was always a big fan of Trottier, Bossy, and Gillies.
Try to stay in a place near the MTA Blue Line or Green Line. The Blue Line lets you off two blocks from Staples.
If you drive, you can park for as little as $7 if you go far enough north on Figueroa.
you can even park for 5 bucks around that same area, remember to dress warm it gets a bone chilling 64 around that month
These days the Isles always do.

Oh there's another masochistic Isles fan around... i'm guilty as well. I used to live in Deer Park.
Here lemme buy you a drink:
Ok here is my favorite spot to park. As long as nothing big is going at the Convention Center the price here is usually $7.00. It is the S/E corner of Flower St. and Pico Bl. It is only one block east of the Stapler. Also there are several $10.00 lots on the east side Figueroa St about 1 block south of the Stapler.
Have a great time at the game. Whenever the Mrs. and I travel abroad to watch Hockey I usually ask questions on the home team's message board so I am glad to help out.
